Sweet Baby James

We have a Mockingbird who came to live in our neighborhood a few years ago. He sits on our chimney and sings in the mornings, filling our whole house with his song. I love him. So this year I decided he needed a name, and James seemed to fit. Sweet Baby James. Now, if we could just find him a wife and name her Carly...
As soon as James decides to sit still, I am going to take his picture.
When I was in Missouri a few weeks ago, I was at one of my favorite antique stores and came across this adorable little vintage bird. He was so sweet and I knew he would fit right in at out house. He is currently perched on my Dad's Brownie camera.

And last year at that same antique store, I found these wonderful vintage flashcards. Tweet, indeed.
You would never guess that I love birds. I don't know how James knew, but he did. And he found us.
Happy Spring, Y'all!

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for your comment! It was so funny because I saw the comment and that it was from Debi Vincent, and I thought , huh, I wonder who that is? Then I saw the picture and said "OH! That's FooFoo!!" Your little picture reminds me sooo much of my cousin when she was little, sooo cute!
    Have a great day!
